Team Leader

Skills: The main focus of my research has been gene delivery to mammalian cells, first by synthetic vectors and more recently by viruses.
Expertise: My expertise has evolved from gene and protein delivery in a purely biotechnological context to gene therapy for inherited retinal degenerations using viral vectors. I lead a team who currently specializes on bioengineering approaches to create better gene delivery vehicles, and their application both understanding the retina and experimental gene therapy. Our skills include targeted delivery of optogenetic tools for vision restoration as well as development of delivery strategies for other innovative gene therapeutic approaches.
